I’ve got a question about anonymizing ip-addresses.
I searched in the forums and even via google I could not find the issue, at least not as “solved”.
Here in germany we have to anonymize the ip-addresses, you might know that.
I know there’s a setting in PIWIK’s privacy configuration.
The problem is, I’ve also set up some segments to keep the companies subsidiaries separate from
the rest of the world. They are identified via their ip-addresses.
As I understand the privacy settings, those should be tracked before anonymizing their ip-addresses,
but after several weeks, I still see no visitors if I select the specific segments. It seems
PIWIK is not able to determine them. Is it possible anonymization and segments with ip_address
don’t work together?
Maybe someone can give me a hint to the solution or can tell me if it just won’t work.
Here are my privacy settings:
Anonymize Visitors’ IP addresses: Yes
Select how many bytes of the visitors’ IPs should be masked: 2 byte(s)
Also use the Anonymized IP addresses when enriching visits. No
Thanks in advance!
